Generate our private key using the key tool:

  • To generate the private key run the following key in the terminal

$ keytool -genkey -v -keystore my-release-key.jks -alias alias_name -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000
  • You’ll first be prompted to create a password for the key store.

  • Then, answer the rest of the questions and when it’s all done, you should have a file called my-release-key.jks created in the current directory.

Note: Make sure to save this file somewhere safe, if you lose it you won’t be able to submit updates to your app.
